Densuș (Hungarian: Demsus) is a commune in Hunedoara County, Romania and the site of Densuș Church. It is composed of seven villages: Criva, Densuș, Hățăgel (Hacazsel), Peșteana (Nagypestény), Peștenița (Kispestény), Poieni (Pojény) and Ștei (Stejvaspatak). Densuș was the property of the Romanian noble family Demsușan Mugina, later magyarised under the name of Demsusi Muzsina. One of the descendants of this family, Elisabeta de Margina, married the famous Ioan Corvin, better known as Iancu de Hunedoara.
